Former Gor Mahia head coach Frank Nuttall has been relieved of his duties as the assistant coach at Egyptian giants Zamalek, just 54 days after taking over as Alex McLeish’s assistant.
Zamalek appointed 57-year-old McLeish on 26th February on a one and a half year deal and the former Aston Villa boss later on brought on board Nuttall to serve as his assistant after leading Gor Mahia to two league titles.
Nuttall, who had a rocky start to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) with Gor Mahia, did not need much prompting and flew out immediately after losing to AFC Leopards on Sunday 6 March to take up the new job.
Nuttall’s fate was sealed with the Zamalek chair Mortada Mansour unhappy with the team’s performance lately which has left the team 11 points off the title race.
McLeish has recorded five wins, two draws and as many defeats in all competitions since joining the club. His job is also said to be on the line should things not move in Mortada’s preference.
